"S 41 and S 31 - the Murgtal Tram Line" Gernsbach Transportation Tip by Kathrin_E
Gernsbach Transportation: 1 reviews and 3 photos
The Murgtal tram line is part of the KVV. It has been installed on a closed-down railway line about a decade ago, with new tracks and stops in all villages. There are two lines that use this track.
# The S 31 begins in the Kraichgau hills and travels via Bruchsal and Karlsruhe central station to Freudenstadt, some end already in Forbach.
# The S 41 runs all the way from Karlsruhe to Freudenstadt, 2 hours in total. If you want to travel all the way to Freudenstadt, remember that the KVV area ends in Forbach and that different tickets are needed for the ride beyond.
These trams run at least hourly, in the afternoon every 30 minutes.
Important: Many of the small village stops are "Bedarfshaltestellen", stops upon request. If you are on board the tram, the announcement will say the name of the stop and "Der Zug hält nur bei Bedarf" (The train stops only upon request). To express your request, press the button by the door in time, prior to reaching the stop.
If you are at such a station, you will see an installation like the one in photo 3. Press the big yellow button for the direction of your travel, and the tram driver is notified that s/he has to stop. Otherwise the tram will pass through without stopping.
